MiCAT Planner software will write it instead&mdash;and write it much faster. It uses the same information that a programmer uses to write a measurement program. Available from Mitutoyo America, MiCAT goes directly from a CAD model containing product and manufacturing information to acquire tolerance data and locations for measurements.</span></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/cad/new-software-writes-part-measurement-programs-minutes" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/cad/new-software-writes-part-measurement-programs-minutes#comments CAD Mon, 23 Feb 2015 18:59:00 +0000 46671 at http://machinedesign.com Additive Manufacturing 101 http://machinedesign.com/cad/additive-manufacturing-101 <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Stratasys </div> <div class="node-body article-body">What is Additive Manufacturing?
